Bring your own Thanksgiving food — breads, pastry or wine and gifts for the Food Bank — to be blessed during the Mass of Thanksgiving, 9:00 a.m., Thursday, November 23.
You are invited to place your bread or pastry and your wine or juice for your Thanksgiving table on Mary’s Altar prior to Mass. Father will bless these after Communion.
Father will also bless your gift of food for the Food Bank of Larimer County. Please keep Food Bank items in your pew until the Offertory Procession. Ushers will help direct you with this procession. If you prefer to give a monetary contribution to the Food Bank, we will provide a collection basket.
